    It has come to our attention recently that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of what's appropriate within Aurora and what isn't.

    While we appreciate diversity in chat, there are topics that just don't fit what we seek to be as a community.

    Without further ado, we'll just outline what's wrong right now and how to fix it.

    Inappropriate content
    Terraria is a game for a wide range of ages, and is rated Teen by ESRB, which is considered to be suitable for 13 year olds or higher.

    While that's the case on paper, we all know the minimum (and perhaps median) age of Terraria players go lower than that.

    While we won't hunt you down for the occasional swear word, we urge you to keep the chat aligned to what you would discuss in a room with children and their parents.

    This means we strictly don't appreciate discussion of rape, assault and harassment; sexual roleplay, sexually suggestive chat, swearing as a habit, telling each other to harm themselves etc.

    Yes, even when joking. Especially when you're joking.

    Roleplay
    We're not a roleplay server. We don't condone or support any kind of structured roleplay in public chat (though one off action text or /me won't hurt) and we believe it's distractive from the overall chat experience.

    [23 Sep] This is no longer in effect. The command and the Discord channel has been removed.
    If you wish to roleplay, you can use the /rptoggle command to gain access to a specific roleplay chat.
    After typing /rptoggle, you may use /rp <message> command to roleplay.

    Above points still stand within /rp command.

    The staff reserves the right to execute corrective action to misbehavers, without any precedent, which ranges from verbal warning, formal warning, temporary loss of chat ability (mute) to permanent loss of ability to chat or complete denial of access to all Aurora services permanently (ban) in more extreme cases.


    Thanks for your cooperation.

    me personally i liked seeing the roleplays because people have built up OCs and actually made friends and something to do. From a moderator view i can see why this is a rule with it taking most of the chat. Ah, oh well.. break the rules then nothing works.

    Oh, nothing special, I just like to generally swear more and have silly banters about NSFW topics, these rules limit it so that's the main reason '^^.
    Nonetheless I'll respect the rules, I just wanted to give my honest opinion on the subject @Newy.

    They are enforced. Swearing is allowed, but not with excessive use. We don't encourage users to swear.

    Well, I personally like to role play in the regular play, if that makes sense.

    Ask a staff, @MemeSauce
    (Also, that was pretty off-topic)

    Yeah I need to listen and stop when the staff says stop sorry Newy for the thing that happened earlier.
    (Also, it's okay to say emojis like B sometimes, right?)

    I agree with @Darkfury. People have made friends through this server, and at it's current state, it's devolving into a pit stop for items. If I want to play on it any longer, I would have to find new people to roleplay with, as I am going to make my character's backstory.

    Does this apply to discord as well, or just the Terraria server?
